EG Holds On To Beat Burbank, Folsom Rolls Over Franklin

It was a night of close football games as round two of the Sac-Joaquin Section playoffs rolled through area stadiums Friday night.

Locally, Elk Grove held Burbank on downs at the Herd 26 yardline with nine second left in the game to win 18-12 over the Metro League champions. (Stats on the game below)

The Herd will travel to Rio Linda on Friday, 31-21 winners over Vacaville, in one semi-final game in Division II.

Elk Grove is now the only Delta Valley Conference team still alive in the playoffs. Grant lost at Yuba City, 27-12. while Franklin was defeated by Division I top seed Folsom, 49-16. The three DVC teams shared the conference title this year with 4-1 records.

All four Delta River League teams that qualified for the post-season – Folsom, Oak Ridge, Pleasant Grove and Jesuit – have made it to the semi-finals in Division I.

Oak Ridge defeated Granite Bay, 28-17, while Jesuit beat Tracy, 49- 28. Pleasant Grove won 42-28 over Stagg.

The Marauders play at Folsom while Pleasant Grove takes on Oak Ridge in El Dorado Hills Friday.

In the Division VI semi-finals, Bradshaw Christian defeated Brookside Christian, 35-14.

Notes:

Big Matt Kopa, a 2005 graduate of Elk Grove, was on the sideline of the Elk Grove game. The Philadelphia Eagles cut Kopa at the end of training camp. The 6-8, 310 pound offensive tackle said he is healing from a back injury and his football career is frankly up in the air.


He graduated from Stanford in 2009 with a degree in chemical engineering. He signed with the 49ers as an undrafted free agent then spent time on the practice squads with the New England Patriots and Miami Dolphins.

His former EGHS teammate Kenny Wiggins has stayed with the San Diego Chargers after being released by the team on Monday. Wiggins was activated off the practice squad Sunday for the game in Miami. On Monday the Chargers signed another offensive tackle, waived Wiggins to make some roster room and then resigned Wiggins to the practice squad Tuesday.
